Which Is The Appropriate Setting to
Teach Elementary Art?
While on line learning has emerged as an alternative to traditional face-to-face instruction in American K-12 education, I do not believe it is the appropriate setting to teach elementary art classes.
What Are The Advantages Of Traditional Learning ?
Students have direct access to the teacher.
Vibrant classroom environment conducive to learning.
Classroom can be decorated in vibrant colors.
Students have direct access to materials and equipment.
Teacher can read facial expression of struggling students.
Students can participate in hands on activities.
In-depth art content and required standards can be totally mastered.
Teacher can model projects and assignments.
Disadvantages Of On Line Learning
There is no sound research showing that online courses at the K-12 level are comparable to face-to-face learning.
Plagiarism is a problem for many students.
School districts want to substitute technology for teachers.
Elementary schools are not adequately equipped to provide online art classes.
Less course content than in the face-to-face original content.
Computer literacy of students.
Online access due to logistics or economic reasons.
Hardware requirements for online learning may be too expensive for students.
Individual teachers must acquire new teaching skills.
Is Blended Learning A Solution?
Lack of instructor face-to-face time especially for students of particular learning modalities.
Requires students to work at their own pace.
Students may fall behind.
Little support and guidelines provided for students in an online course.
Individuals charged with the implementation of courses online not only have to be knowledgeable of the subject area they are teaching, but also acquire new teaching skills such as learning to facilitate online interactions and assess student online learning.
Designing the cyber course effectively to meet student's needs can be a sizeable responsibility for the educator.
Elementary schools are not adequately equipped to provide online art classes.
Not all teachers are adequately trained to teach online classes.
Unable to repicate the traditional class environment.
Can Young Students Learn From
Research has shown that online and virtual
school classes have been predominately used in the
area of English, Math, Language Arts, and
History. Students can learn some art concepts
online, however the in-depth content and required
standards can not be totally mastered online.
Students must be disciplined enough to work alone and independently.
Adolescents and young students are easily distracted.
Many online classes are web-based correspondence courses where students complete worksheets and take test.
Too many online courses take a just stick to the facts approach.
Students who are reluctant to ask for help do not receive it.
" There are several new ways of thinking about
teaching and learning that have emerged in the
online learning arena. For instance, microlectures, badges, gamification, and challenged-based learning. " (EDUCAUSE , 2012)". One of the most promising tools for teaching art online is badges. Badges signify accomplishments such as completion of a project, mastery of a skill or marks of experience.
Schoology is a LMS that would be most effective for my students who are in grades kindergarten through fifth to navigate, engage and communicate. Schoology also includes badges.
Why Is Face Time Important?
1. Struggling students have difficulty judging when they need more review.
2. Struggling students also have difficulty forming questions to express where they lost the meaning of the content and knowing how to study.
3. The teacher can read the expressions of their students .
4. Immediate feedback and clarification can be given to students.
5. Less independent learning is required.
According to Bentley (n.d.), scholars agree that social presence is a particularly powerful concept because of its seemingly central influence on teaching and learning, I maintain that personal interaction on a daily basis is essential to teaching art classes. Art students are constantly engaged in hands on activities and face-to-face interaction with the teacher is needed. While a good online course can take advantage of many intricate applets, videos, discussions boards, and emails to help convey social presence, the online teacher is not readily available to model projects or assignments, or recognize that students are reluctant to ask for help. I also believe that online courses can not duplicate the traditional classroom environment.

Ms. Spearman's Art Class
Lesson Title: Dream House
While online teachers can use web resources to stimulate the class environment, they can not replicate my traditional face-to-face art classroom which is needed for my students to master in depth art concepts to be successful. My classroom has a colorful environment. I decorate my class with vibrant colors which stimulates my students' creative thinking and makes the environment conducive to learning.
When I am teaching the Dream House lesson, I engage the students by asking them questions from Bloom's Taxonomy. I pique students' interest by showing them a finished example and model what I want the students to accomplish. I walk around the classroom assisting students when needed. I encourage them by emphasizing the positives that I see. Students participate in a gallery walk and give each other feedback. I also use a Kagan reflection ball for student response at the end of class. I use rubrics to asses student learning.
Do Online Elementary Schools Exist In The United States?
First Trail Academy is registered as a private school with the Florida Department of Education.
1. Fully accredited school for grades levels K-5.
2. Students are still required to complete their elementary course work and submit assignment for which they are graded.
3. The only exception being they have the option of completing their elementary course work in an online environment.
4. Offers a complete selection of core academic and elementary courses required from kindergarten to 5th grade.
5. Curriculum is aligned with Common Core Standards and the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.
1. An online elementary school whose curriculum
brings together the best class materials from leading education publishers and content providers.
2. Provides all texts, lesson plans, and materials. Everything you need for a high quality learning experience at home!!!
3. Most curriculum content for younger grades is in print,
with online content.
4. As students advance through virtual elementary schools, more of the content is delivered online, but
still supported by printed materials.

Questions For Thought
1. At the classroom level, blended learning can occur when online courses are supported with in class-instruction or instructional support.
2. Blended classrooms enable schools to maintain continuity of learning
during a pandemic or natural disaster, offer opportunities for personalization of the classroom instruction, and offer students multiple pathways to learning.
The fine arts presents special challenges for online instruction. Paint, clay, and instructors must evaluate work that may be thousand of miles away.
Example One: The Academy of Art In San Francisco
The University relies heavily on the following:
high quality videos
software designed for art instruction
students ability to mail, scan, or take digital photos of their work.
the capability of teachers to annotate drawings online by attaching audio feedback and indicating suggested areas of improvement to students.
Example Two: The Academy of Art In San Francisco, Sculpture Course
The Academy of art providers online plans and demonstrations to help students.
The University also recommends finding a local teacher to help teach students more details. One student ended up attending a class at a local community college to supplement the online course.
Art Tango K-5 Art Education
Offers free lessons for K-5 students.
Web benefits in online gallery, assessment tools, and enrichment options.
The online art lessons are in a written format, but Artango also has available lessons in a video format.
Time 4 Learning Provides A Supplemental Art Course
Time 4 Art is an animated online home school art course for current students of Time 4 Learning.
It is available for fourth-eight grades.
Animated characters lead students through interactive lesson topics such as line, form, and color using real examples from art history to illustrate each concept.
Animated characters guide students step-by-step as they create their own art, both on and off the computer.
Can Online Art Can Be Used To Identify Student Passion?
Technology can not provide passion, but online instructors can use technology to motivate students by tapping into their interest and their desire to know more about specific subjects or topics. An art teacher could deviate from the traditional curriculum by having students explore art history and providing them access to an online art gallery that has exhibits, or by viewing biographical videos of various artists.
Online Art Museum
Setting Up An Online Art Gallery
Which Is The Appropriate Setting to Teach Elementary Art ?
Art Museum.net brings the art exhibit experience to your personal computer, complete with a museum store. Presented by Intel, an interactive first person display allows students to move, look, and learn at a museum art exhibit.
As a part of its Tomorrow's Classroom Project, The Seattle Art Museum created a space on the web where students can build their own art exhibitions with a professional gloss.
After completing each activity on the site, students perform research or complete a step towards creating an exhibition that is then logged in their online notebooks.
In order to facilitate digital wisdom, distance learning experiences must be meaningful to the learner. Input from students is needed in order to design distance learning experiences that facilitate digital wisdom. Emphasis must be placed on creating important and useful life opportunities for students. The focus must be on 21st century learners and how they can be successful and function in a global world.
Traditional Classroom or Online?
My Choice Is The Traditional Classroom!
Students can learn some art concepts online, however, the in-depth art content and required standards can not be totally mastered online.
